Happy Spring!  Happy Spring, Allie, the beautiful chocolate girl! :-) In memory of Piper, our beautiful chocolate boy for 13 years. Julie P.

 

In addition to LOVE this dog has the following requirements:
Date Available Fence Kid Friendly Another Dog Cat Friendly
4.23.17  Required   Not tested Required  Yes
This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.

Miss Allie has come into the RAGOM fold and she is as sweet as they come.  She is a 6 year old PB Chocolate Lab.  Allie came from a breeder in Missouri with several other dogs to start a new life.  She made the long trip north last weekend and she would like to thank everyone who helped her get here to start this new life. 

This girl is not a typical mama I have seen from a breeding operation.  She is very friendly, loves attention and is very curious about the world around her.  If you don’t love kisses, butt wiggles and a happy dog tail then Allie is not the dog for you.  I have been wondering all week if she is part feline, as she likes to rub her face on my legs.

Allie was vetted on 3/27/17 and was found to be heartworm negative, and is getting caught up on all her vaccinations.  She does have ear infections that she has topical ointment for. She will need her booster shots in about two more weeks.  She will also need to be spayed which is scheduled for April 21st.  Unfortunately she weighed in at 102 lbs. so she needs to lose some weight for sure.  Her vet thinks she should be between 65-75 lbs.  Right now her exercise is our walks around the yard.  She will follow me and stops to rest and then we keep making our circuit around the yard. After a few days of our “yard walks” I have seen Allie starting to move a little faster.  She actually did a little trot to catch up to me when we were exercising in the yard.  One of her favorite things to do is roll around on her back and make some very cute snuffy noises.  Snuffy is like a grunt and an “ahhhh” combined.  I don’t know how to explain it any other way.

So far Allie has paid very little attention to the other two resident dogs.  Her goal in life seems to be getting human attention.  It is unknown how she reacts to cats.  She is not very interested in the rabbits and squirrels in the neighboring yards.

Allie is learning how to crate.  She will go in for a small treat and rests quietly through the night.  The only noise I hear is the thump thump thump of her tail when I get up to take everyone outside in the morning.  She sure is a happy girl!  The only thing that will make her happier is to find a forever home that will make her part of the family.

This weekend Allie will get to enjoy a first, her very own spa day.  She’ll got a bath, blow out and a nail trim. 

Since Allie is such a big girl and has not had any training she could knock over small children in her excitement.  She does not mean any harm but gets pretty happy and that could be an issue.

Once Allie is up to date on her shots and is spayed she will be available to move to her forever home.  If you think she would be a treasured family member please contact RAGOM and fill out the required form.  There is a tab on the Home page that will give you directions on how our adoption process works.

Allie has hit the jackpot.  She was adopted today by a wonderful family.  She'll have two moms, a fur sister, and two cats to play with and a shaded yard and comfy patio to hang out on.  She is such a sweet girl.  We wish her the best as she starts her golden/chocolate life!

Our Beautiful Allie!

Allie is doing great. She very much enjoys being with her people and loves to wander out in the yard. It is easier to get her to go outside now. Once in a while we still have to use a treat but she is doing much better with going out with the other dogs. With the nicer days finally here, she will lay out in the sun for a while but then she wants to be inside to see what's going on. 

She has had a couple of baths and the old hair is coming out much easier. Her coat is coming in nice and shiny and a darker chocolate color. As the weather got warmer we noticed Allie was becoming quite itchy. She was biting at her back legs and belly. We had started Allie on some Benadryl but it wasn't doing enough for her so we took her to the vet last week. The vet rechecked her ears and also give us some Prednisone in order to get things more under control. The Prednisone seems to be helping quite a bit. Her ears look better but not totally cleared up yet so we will use the ear ointment for a while longer.

The good news is that while at the vet we got a new weight for Allie. She is down to 86 pounds. Even though it's only 4 pounds since her last weigh in, we are happy that we are making progress. From 102 pounds to 86 has made a big difference in how she feels. Allie seems to have more energy and will fetch a tennis ball for a little bit. We only throw it a short distance since she is still getting used to more exercise. She is so happy when she gets to play!
I will send in some new photos of Allie this weekend. You couldn't ask for a more friendly, laid back dog.

Allie has been with us for a couple of weeks now. She is a very friendly girl who likes to visit with everyone she meets. Her spay sutures were removed last week so now she can be more active. We have been tossing a tennis ball for her out in the yard. Allie loves to go get the ball but isn't sure about giving it back so we have been working on that. It is very clear that she is having fun with the tennis ball as her tail never stops wagging. She is a Velcro dog and loves to follow her people around and lay close by. Allie weighs about 90 pounds right now. She really needs to lose some more weight. We have been taking her on two walks a day plus playing a little bit of fetch in the yard in hopes of getting her weight down. I know it will be a slow process but now with the spay surgery done she is becoming more energetic and wants to play. We do have 2 cats at our house and Allie gets along with them fine. Allie is the kind of girl that is just happy-go-lucky and I think she would get along with pretty much anybody, 2 legged or 4 legged.
 Allie has a couple of stuffed toys she loves to carry around. When she takes her naps she usually has one or both of them close by. Chew toys are another favorite. We have antlers and nylabones in our dog basket and she likes to take them out and chew on them throughout the day.

Allie would love to have a forever home with another large dog to give her confidence. Allie does not like to be outside by herself for long. She gets some treats when she goes outside and she is learning it's OK to be out in the yard wandering around or laying in the sun on the deck. Our dog loves to do that and Allie is more content to have another dog with her. Allie is very food motivated so that is an easy way to get her attention for training. She is a very sweet girl!

If you think Allie would be a good fit in your home, please submit an "Inquiry for Application" form. If you have already filled out an "Inquiry for Application" form, please send an email to application@ragom.org with the dog's name, RAGOM number, the name you submitted the Inquiry for Application form under and a sentence or two why you feel you'd be a good match.
